What is Sports Medicine?
Sports Medicine is a specialised field of medicine that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of injuries related to physical activity and sports. It combines the disciplines of sports science, physical therapy, orthopaedics, and rehabilitation to provide a comprehensive approach to the care of athletes and individuals engaged in physical activity. Our Sports Medicine professionals work with athletes at all levels, from amateurs to professionals, and employ various techniques to help them recover from injuries, prevent future injuries, and optimise their performance. In this way, Sports Medicine enables athletes to achieve their goals and maintain their physical health.
